OMG. if you have a bmi of 14.0 @ 5'3" (this means you weight LESS THAN 80 LBS), regardless of your age or your eating habits you NEED TO SEE A DOCTOR ASAP. a weight this low can kill you; there is no muscle/fat ratio at this weight that can be healthy, this much of a lack of fat can wreak havoc on your organs and your nervous system. please see a doctor ASAP.
